He Ain't Heavy, He's My Bunneh

This little grey bun's Ma perished just a week after it was born.

Thankfully, this Marmalade Matron cat-dopted the bun as her own.

Get a load of the total money shot still too. Redoooonk! [singsong voice]


Jess K., I'm picking you up by the scruff of the neck if you don't get back in the box.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:42 AM

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:42 AM

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:44 AM

my hed just completely sploded all opver my computer screen.
this is just too much.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:48 AM

omg, this literally brought tears to my eyes!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:49 AM

I love stories where a different species of animal adopts another...supah cute!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:50 AM

CoffeeCup - The cat's milk should be fine for the wee bunbun; when we care for orphaned bunnikins, we feed them a mixture of KMR (kitten milk replacer), heavy cream, and acidophilus. But in the future I'll seriously consider finding a marmie mum to foster!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:55 AM

This is adorable. And Mama picking up the bunny to bring her back to the box... awwww.

Mama is all "I shall leeeeck you until you smell like all my other kittehs. Why don't you smell like my other kittehs?"

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:56 AM

Mommie Kitty + Bebeh Bunneh = Trooo Luv.
What a great vid.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:59 AM

Behold the awesomeness of marmie cats, bebeh bunnies, and jazz guitar!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:02 PM

You're playing with fire here!

Don't you realize the positively lethal combination that results from putting adorable fluffy kitten right next to precious velvety bunneh?

Well... yeah... why not just mix some cute oily rags and pretty lighted candles, huh?!!... How 'bout that?!!! Sheesh.

I tell you that kitten-bunneh combo is dangerous to any human head who views it. The odds are practically 100% that your....


 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:03 PM

EGADS! Now THAT was cute! And lol @ "The Money Shot"

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:12 PM

Oh Em Gee!


*head asplode*!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:12 PM

Dang it!! My head was about to explode from a sinus headache, but I got it under control. Then I got a look at the sweet little bunbun and his adopted mama, and dang if my head DIDN'T 'splode!!! This time from all the cuteness, though.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:17 PM

That is sweet. There has been a lot of interspecies snorgling lately. I think this is a good sign. Now if we humans could just get along...

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:19 PM

I wondered about the milk too, especially cos kittehs eat meat or meat products in their food.

So long as the baby bun survived I ain't complaining. Especially now he's got little marmie brudders and sisters.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:19 PM

OMG im ganna splode from the cuteness!!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:20 PM

OOOOOOOh My Goodness!!!!! Cuter than I evah believed possible!!!

Will babeh bunneh be getting more and more licks as someone starts to smell distinkly bunneh and not cutely kitteh to the mama cat's nose?

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:23 PM

The bunnie will grow up thinking its a cat! Can you imagine a bunnie playing with a catnip mouse? Kawaii!!!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:24 PM

Oh, I just so needed to see something like this right now. It has really made my day. %<)

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:31 PM

This might just put Berthasevant over the edge - bunneh AND his fave flavor of kitteh!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:33 PM

That's bootiful man! Bunny cat, bunny cat, so cutes. mmm, is it 5:00 yet? guh. I don't have enough energy for my head to splode right now. maybe later.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:33 PM

Well! This is ending a WHOLE lot better than previous cat/baby rabbit interactions I've seen. (Well, usually I just see the aftermath, lying there on the porch . . . if you get my drift.)

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:42 PM

so cute....!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:44 PM

Bun will grow up not able to identify potential predators. But a few kittens will grow up knowing not to mess with bunnies -- they kick and scratch something awful.

I'd love to see the sibs playing when they get bigger.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:45 PM

Oh man--if it is possible to kill someone with cuteness, we've just discovered the murder weapon!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:45 PM

The mammalian instict for motherhood never fails to blow me away. It's amazing how cat and dog milk does do well across a lot of species. Carni or veggie... the baby needs are really similar. A lot of wildlife rescuers use cat mild substitute for baby animals. :D

Wonderful story

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:46 PM

OH... and a marmie-momma is rare too! They always have such lovely kittens.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:47 PM

Bunnysuckle! Oh, this is just 2 much!!! Want to snorgle and kiss all of them!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:51 PM

What a beautiful family! Arachnophile-I thought marmie mums were rare! Glad to have it confirmed. I have a foster one right now, with 5 adorable kittens-they are a joy. The mum was found with newborn kittens and a prolapsed uterus so it didn't look like a happy outcome at first-but all are thriving! We love them. Henry & Ribsy, Ramona & Beezus and Robert. The mum is Tigerlily.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:57 PM

Excellent names for those kitties!!!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:02 PM

More proof of my theory that a Mommy Red will mother ANYTHING!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:08 PM

Kitten: O HAI! How'd you get here anyway, sis? You look all weird and stuff.

Bun: Well, I know mom gave birth to you guys live and all, but I think I must have come from an egg.

Kitten: ORLY?

Bun: Yeah, mama laid me! Get it? Get it? MARMALADE me! HAHAHAHA! I crack me up.

Kitten: Whatevs. *rolls eyes*

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:10 PM

Oof... that's a hard start, Jorden. Kudos to you for helping them along.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:12 PM

...and LOL, Laura

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:12 PM

When you think about it, with human bebehs, if mum's a vegetarian (or a vegan, even) her milk's just as good as if mum did eat meat ...

I spose. *looks unsure*

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:13 PM

Absolutely right, starling.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:17 PM

"I'd love to see the sibs playing when they get bigger."

Probably look a lot like that "halp!" picture the other day.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:20 PM

Adoption ROCKS!

pleeese everyone go back to the beginning at 0:03 and watch the bun strayche encore a thousand times. aaah!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:29 PM

Nobody needs to eat meat to be a good mom with good milk, starling. So, agreed! :) That was far, far, left field off topic of me, but I thought I'd chime in!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:31 PM

Okay, I have to say it. I'll get yelled at, but here it goes:

Predator nursing prey. Makes 'em tender!

There, I did it. I don't feel good about it, but I went with the first thought that popped in my head.

Dang, the kittehs and bunneh are soooo cute! I hope they stay friends forever!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:33 PM

sploded mess all over desk now. can I go home? Big smiles for the unbearable cuteness of it all !!!!!!!!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:48 PM

my heart just sploded :)

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:48 PM

I'm at work, so the video is blocked, but I can see the picture of the kitteh and bunneh. Too frickin' adorable!!!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:58 PM

It's too perfect - let's not forget that baby rabbits are called KITTENS! *head asplode*
